Growing up in the entertainment industry I learned that no overnight success happens overnight. My parents discovered Alan Jackson when he was working in a mailroom and Sawyer Brown playing small venues and clubs for years.
Generally, people see the end result and have no idea the work and determination it takes to get there. We live in a now society. Video on demand, instant coffee, 24 hour news, the internet at our fingertips 24/7 on our smartphones. We don’t see the building blocs of success because we see how big things already are. The final product overshadows the work it took to get there.
I say this to encourage you on your journey. Every failure or stumbling block is a learning experience and one step closer to success. I would even argue that overcoming a road block is the definition of success. Success is not the final product; it is the years of work you invest into becoming the final product.
If you stay the course and follow your passions, you are a success. Your hard work will change the world around you…its worth it!
